It has been theorized that hyperacusis, at least in part, may involve how our mind processes sound.  It is interesting to hear fascinating stories about some of the incredible potential our brain has to adapt or change - evolve.  This is a worthwhile read...

I'd highly recommend Oliver Sacks' Musicophilia, for anyone who has an interest in understanding the process of hearing, but especially for those of you who enjoy music (or wish you could).  I have issues with Sacks' evolutionary presuppositions, but otherwise consider him a brilliant and original thinker.  The book is available in hardcover through Alfred A. Knopf (2007); a revised and expanded paperback was published last year through Random House's Vintage division.
